Dealing with anxiety as a child was not easy at all. I was nervous, anxious, small, and was frequently bored which led to acting out. As i got older, I found that doing something with my mind and my hands kept my anxiety and boredom at bay.
When I was about nine or ten years old, my grandfather began doing jigsaw puzzles with me. I completed my first 100 piece puzzle in less than an hour! (I though that was really something!) Now that I’m older and my son is getting older, I’d love to try puzzles with him.
Jigsaw puzzles, are a wonderful way to do something in your spare time that keeps your brain sharp and your nerves on an even keel! First, start with puzzles that aren’t too hard for you, (Perhaps up to 150 pieces) so you stay on track and aren’t discouraged enough to bail before you finish the puzzle.
Secondly, I separate the pieces that have at least one straight edge from the others without one. I find it helpful to start by putting the edges together first- that seems to be the least diffucult way to begin. Once the outside edges have been completed, the inside seems much easier for me to fill in. My next tip is to find similar colors and attempt to put them together as well…the edges can give you a clue as to which pieces can be a perfect fit. Just jeep trying and dont be afraid to take a break if you need one.
